"Tee off" and choose your energy future
Learn about different sources of energy—how they work and the impact each has—as you play a highly interactive game of miniature golf. Play your way through the energy landscape of choices like oil, natural gas, wind, solar, hydroelectric and nuclear power. Just as golfers keep score, you keep a running tally of what you've learned at each hole. The final hole is your chance to "putt the vote" and have your say on the best choice for our energy future.
And speaking of the future, this Black Creativity exhibit for 2012 also explores the fuels of tomorrow, as well as conservation, energy storage, and the smart grid. It will introduce you to leaders in today's energy research, production and distribution, and present the range of careers available in these fields.
This exhibit is included in general admission, but it requires a free, timed-entry ticket available at the exhibit entrance only. Capacity is limited and tickets are subject to availability. Related events are also included in Museum general admission.
